Labyrinth and the Princeton Public Library invite you to a practical and spirited presentation about how to jump-start your writing process.
Imagine having your own personal mentor—someone encouraging yet honest, supportive yet empowering, who could help you set and achieve your goals, turn your moments of doubt and fear into sources of strength, and discover what you’re truly capable of when you’re at your best. Kendra Levin is here to help you do the best writing of your life—and live your best life while doing it. She weaves together wisdom drawn from her years as a life coach for writers and an editor at the world’s biggest publishing house with behind-the-scenes stories from a panoply of best-selling authors and career entertainers. The book contains over thirty exercises designed to help you reinvent your creative process.
